Raw Talent – Michael Arnold

The simple yet colorful illustrations of Mike Arnold recently caught Stylesight’s eye.

Beautifully selected colors and naïve self-taught illustration style really hit you when you first see Mike Arnold’s work. A young illustrator from the U.K., Arnold opted out of university and began crafting his own creative skills through his personal passions.

Arnold has already featured in several key graphic design blogs and is on track to emerge on the illustration scene before his university chums graduate. We love his use of unstructured typography and bold graphic marks. Some of his latest footwear illustrations have a flavor of the 195os in color usage and simple graphic technique. Definitely one to watch out for in 2012 !
